GOMA | Gallery 1.1, The Fairfax Gallery | Ticketed
Cindy Sherman is renowned for her mastery of masquerade — her own image is at the centre of an inspiring array of character studies created over decades. Sherman expands on contemporary society's fascination with aspiration, narcissism and the cult of celebrity, and explores the resulting emotional fragility. Focusing on large-scale photographs made since 2000, this exhibition charts the artist's return as the central model in her artworks, for which she is also costume designer, make-up artist and photographer. The exhibition includes two series made with high fashion houses Balenciaga and Chanel, and an entirely new body of work shown for the first time outside New York.
The exhibition will travel to City Gallery Wellington in New Zealand from 19 November 2016 to 19 March 2017.
